Van Diemen's Women - A History of Transportation to Tasmania
An in-depth account of what life was like for a woman transported from Ireland to Van Diemen's Land in the 1840s and how a Draconian punishment for some became a life saving measure.

In September 1845, the convict ship Tasmania left Ireland with 138 female convicts bound for Van Diemen's Land. This book examines the lives of all the women on board and their aacompanying children - focusing in particular on two women, Eliza Davis and Margaret Butler.
